In the VILLAGES, TOWNS, AND CITIES OF THE REALM section, is it possible to present two additional figures:
- how much it would cost to build a realm able to hold the listed number of families? This would be useful if, for example, colonists wanted to estimate the cost of building a hamlet, lords promised to rebuild a village destroyed in war and needed to know if their treasury could stretch that far, or generals were making decisions about the long-term consequences of allowing a city to be razed?
- how much free cash is to be had (maybe with another column showing the amount of barter/liquidity)? The 3E DMG had this kind of value for its demographics, which I always found helpful.
I think it’d be cool to have this shown in the table, and also to talk about the assumptions & formulae in the text to allow people to generate their own values for different campaigns.
